its been 3 years since my setup was dismantle and sold. and now im looking at some websites for products that i would need to restart a whole new tank and im lost, soo many new brands and newer tech that i dont know what is good and which is bad other than $$$ is ganna be alot for what i want.
can anyone do a quick write up for the basic items/brand i would needto setup a 300 gallon tank with a mid -size reef
wet-dry, overflow filter, which brand
heater, which brand
lights, which brand
power heads, i used hagen 802 wiht ceramic shaft for a long time,are they still good or is there better.
test kit, like a whole master kit to test ph
nit,amo and all the good stuff.
main pump for wet/dry
protein skimmer, i had an old hob
coralife skimmer and i liked it, did a great job but same question, is there better or newer tech that i should read and look into it.
$$$ is on a decent budget, not going very very crazy like i would but i do have limits lol. btw
im putting this tank inside a wall division in the house, betwen the living room and the kitchen, so dont worry about canopy size and stand size, i got a whole wall to work with
